Well, as stated in the last post here, it's a very good idea to make sure the Router/AP knows what static IP addresses are in use if the Router/AP will still be providing DHCP services, so that it will not attempt to use/assign any static IP address from the pool of IP addresses it will be using, when DHCP is in use.
If you don't do this, you can run into problems. This is because at some point in the future, the Router/AP could assign a static IP address for a camera to another device at the same time the camera is already using that same IP address.
